Chatto Glengarry Vineyard – ‘20 years between drinks’
Planted in 1991, Glengarry Vineyard is located on the West Tamar, but more inland, and at higher altitude, than the majority of Tamar vineyards. This makes for a slighter cooler, later ripening site, providing real purity, and focus, to the bright red and black fruits and lifted florals. A spicy mix of three (predominantly Dijon) clones: 115 (50%) MV6 (25%) and D5V12 (25%) Jim first made Pinot from this site way back in 1999, and the inaugural Chatto Pinot in 2000. Feels full circle to have this special wine back in the range.
